Bye Bye Now!
DIRECTED BY AIDEEN O’SULLIVAN AND ROSS WHITAKER
IRELAND, 2009, 15 MIN
Well into the 1980s, the humble phone booth was the chosen method of communication in Ireland and is the subject of this poignant documentary about the fate of the Irish “phone box,” which has gone from the center of society to the verge of extinction. An amusing tribute that honors a dying form of technology while celebrating the gift of gab.
